"He is a lover of learning, lover of people, and lover of helping people learn more deeply about themselves... Many parenting books offer solutions that are quite difficult to implement or present scenarios that are not relevant to most. Other parenting books also fail to take into consideration the emotions of the parent, which is such a significant piece to the parenting puzzle. Emotions - Your Child’s and Yours is a practical, personal journey through how to best parent those in your care... It is an honor to know David and I pray that each of you find the wisdom and revelation I found in being his friend through the pages of this book."
